Man Accused Of Stealing Paul Allen’s Credit Card To Plead Guilty

(CBS Seattle) — A former soldier is expected to plead guilty to stealing Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen’s credit card, according to KOMO News.

The FBI said last year Brandon Price managed to change the address on Allen’s Citibank account then told the bank he’d lost his debit card. As a result, the bank sent Price a replacement to which he then tried to pay off his personal loans and make a $15,000 wire transfer.

How Price got Allen’s account information is still being investigated by the FBI.

According to KOMO, Price is a soldier who the Army says was AWOL for two years. He is set to plead guilty to bank fraud and could be sentenced for up to 30 years in federal prison.
